## Homework Statement

An isolated container is divided into two equal volumes by partition. In each part of the container there is an ideal gas. They have the same pressure P. The partition is removed. Which of the following is the final pressure:

A: P/2

B:P

C:3P/2

D:2P

## Homework Equations

PV=nRT (I assume)

## The Attempt at a Solution

Well, I know the right answer is B, the answer key says so, but I am not sure why. I thought about using this equation PV/T = constant, therefore T = PV, and P=T/V, so if volume is doubled, and T is constant, then P will be halved. I am not sure if this is right. Any help? :)
